I'm a strong believer in sharing info with ghg that in my opinion is age appropriate...I feel if an AS kid knows what's going on he will gain more insight and not feel 'stupid' (my sons words) because he 'don't get' social cues or feels different... My mom feels I'm doing the wrong thing because I'm empowering him to have info so he can 'act' the illness or manipulate us. I told her that the worse thing for my ghg is to feel different or not fit in so he will do anything in his power not to act non neuro typical!!! I know when he is manipulative.....this is very seldom. He would rather try and cover up his symptoms! Any thoughts?
